Trent Seven had a notable career on the independent circuit before entering WWE in December 2016, where he achieved success as a three-time Progress Wrestling tag team champion and held the Atlas Championship. He debuted in TNA recently and now he explained how the debut came together.
After parting ways with WWE in August 2022 during a round of cuts, Seven made his AEW debut on the December 7 episode of Rampage, securing “per show deal” with the company. The former WWE Superstar then made his way to TNA Wrestling, debuting at the Final Resolution pay-per-view. Trent teamed up with “Speedball” Mike Bailey to defeat The Rascalz (Trey Miguel & Zachary Wentz). Shortly after it was then revealed that he had officially sign a contract with TNA Wrestling.
In an exclusive interview with Tom Campbell of Cultaholic, Trent Seven elaborated on the negotiations leading to his TNA contract and how everything came together for him to debut at Final Resolution. Trent elaborated how they were speaking for a few weeks and then everything just kind of came together.
“We’ve been speaking for a few weeks now. Kind of just piecing things together and making sure everything worked out. A lot of times in this industry and the entertainment industry it’s about saying the right thing, being in the right place at the right time, doing the right stuff, looking the right way.“
“There’s a lot of things that have to link up for these things to happen and that’s what it was. It was just the right place, right time, right decision.“
“A million and 10 things lit up, evolving on the day and just kind of continuously evolving and luckily we got to deliver the fans with a real professional wrestling exciting secret. I just love it when wrestling happens like that.”
In addition to being a former NXT Tag Team Champion, Seven had also held the NXT UK Tag Team Championship alongside Tyler Bate, adding to his impressive wrestling resume.
We will have to wait and see whether Trend Seven will find massive success in TNA Wrestling, as fans feel he might be able to bolster his career in a big way during his time there, especially after the promotion’s rebranding next month.
